TRU Precious Metals Increases Land Position at its Flagship Golden Rose Project in Central Newfoundland
Fredericton, New Brunswick–(Newsfile Corp. – June 24, 2021) – TRU Precious Metals Corp. (TSXV: TRU) (OTCQB: TRUIF) (FSE: 706) (« TRU » or the « Company ») is pleased to announce the acquisition of a significant claims package (the « Claims ») contiguous with the Company’s flagship Golden Rose Project in Central Newfoundland’s Gold Belt.
TRU has acquired, via indirect staking, 62.25 square kilometres (km2) of mineral claims contiguous with the existing Golden Rose Project, increasing the property size by almost 60% from 105 km2 to 167.25 km2 (Figure 1) along and adjacent to the Cape Ray – Valentine Lake Shear Zone (the « Shear Zone »).
Joel Freudman, Co-Founder and CEO of TRU, commented: « Consistent with TRU’s stated strategic objective to add or expand properties of merit along the Shear Zone, this acquisition adding to our district-scale Golden Rose Project is very exciting for us, and comes at only minimal staking costs. This consolidation provides better coverage of a 23 km section of a possible splay structure, or offshoot, adjacent to the main Shear Zone. Importantly, this 23 km long splay structure is very underexplored and is known to host gold mineralization, which automatically makes the Claims an early focus of TRU’s field programs at Golden Rose. »
The Claims are located along a structural corridor (Figure 2) believed to be a splay of the Shear Zone containing anomalous gold and arsenic in lake sediments. Several recent gold occurrences on the Golden Rose Project are interpreted to be associated with this splay structure. These include the Jacobs Pond gold zone (hand trenching returned grab samples grading from 0.8 grams per tonne (g/t) gold (Au) to 2.2 g/t Au) and the Rose Gold showing (hand trenching returned grab samples grading from 3.3 g/t Au to 20.2 g/t Au)1. Additionally, visible gold grains have been panned along the trend of this structural corridor. The Claims also contain a historic grid hosting anomalous gold in soil values including 110ppb gold in soil2. Other historic gold showings that appear to be located along the structural corridor include the Sansu gold showing (3.5 g/t Au in grab samples3) and the Big Arm gold showing (16 g/t Au4).
